Narration difficult to understand

I understand that this book was originally written in Spanish. The reason for translating it into English is so we English speakers can understand and enjoy this great story.

The narrator's thick Spanish accent and poor pronunciation of English words makes it very difficult to understand what he is saying all of the time.

I find myself having to rewind a great deal to catch words and phrases. (And this is a long book.)

When I listen to narrations of Tolstoy and Dostoevsky I listen to a pleasant, understandable English accent. The audio publishers felt no need to hire a narrator with a thick Russian accent and poor English pronunciation skills.

I just listened to "The White Tiger". An excellent book. Takes place in India. The Narrator, Mr Lee, narrates with an excellent Indian accent to give us a sense that we are listening to an Indian story. He does so with totally understandable English pronunciation.

There is no crime to speak with an accent, if you have excellent English pronunciation skills. This narrator does not.

Wish I Read the Review Before Ordering

The previous review nailed it. A classic when read, a nightmare to listen to, if Audible had a money back guarantee this would be one that would be going back. Save your credits.
